Saturday Betting Guide: Our writers' best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview.
Nottingham Forest to beat Peterborough (15:00)
Peterborough have the worst travelling record in the Championship, with nine defeats out of 10 this season.
Posh were thumped 4-0 at Blackburn last time out on the road and have failed to score in five of their last six.
Nottingham Forest have lost once in their last 13 and, while five of their last six were draws, they should have enough for three points here.
Mansfield to beat Doncaster (15:00)
Mansfield are a massive price here, despite the division gap between the two sides.
The Stags have won six of their last seven matches in all competitions, including a 1-0 victory away to League One promotion chasers Sunderland in the FA Cup first round.
Doncaster are second-bottom of League One and have lost three straight matches without scoring.
Ipswich to beat Barrow (15:00)
Barrow’s 1-0 defeat away to Sutton last weekend was their third in a row and fourth without a goal, leaving them fifth-bottom of League Two.
Mark Cooper’s side have managed just one win in their last six on the road in all competitions, against level-seven Banbury in the FA Cup first round.
Ipswich have lost once in their last 10 at Portman Road
Real Madrid to beat Real Sociedad (20:00)
Real Madrid come into this having won seven on the bounce in all competitions and nine in a 10-match unbeaten run.
That sequence of results has seen Carlo Ancelotti's side rise to the top of La Liga, oveertaking Sociedad on the way.
They are rarely available at this side of evens, so are worth backing when they are, especially given that Real Sociedad have lost two of their last three.
PSG to beat Lens (20:00)
PSG are rarely available at a price like this, so it’s worth backing them when they are.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are 12 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, having won 13 games out of 16.
Lens are having a decent season in fifth but have managed two victories in seven, so it’s hard not to side with the league leaders.
Mainz v Wolfsburg (14:30)
Mainz have scored and conceded in their last five home games, including 4-1 and 3-2 victories.
The hosts have seen BTTS land in all of their last eight overall.
Wolfsburg have scored in 11 of their 13 league matches this season.
Watford v Man City (17:30)
Watford have been involved in 4-1, 4-2 and 2-1 scorelines against Manchester United, Leicester and Chelsea in the last fortnight.
The Hornets are the fifth-highest goalscorers in the Premier League since Claudio Ranieri took over as head coach, while forward Emmanuel Dennis has scored in his last three games.
Man City have only kept two clean sheets in their last seven away matches, and are bound to score themselves.
Coventry draw no bet v West Brom (12:30)
West Brom have been mediocre recently, failing to win any of their last four games.
The Baggies have lost four and drawn one of their last five on the road, scoring one goal, so are worth backing against when they travel to Coventry.
Coventry have won seven of their 10 home games this season, including a 4-1 victory against league leaders Fulham.
Lewis Grabban (Nottingham Forest) to score v Peterborough (15:00)
Grabban has scored eight goals this season, including at least one in four of his last six home games.
He scored a brace against Preston last time out at the City Ground.
Peterborough have conceded 28 goals in 10 away games this season and Grabban is the likeliest to do the damage to them here.
Robert Lewandowski to score & Bayern Munich to beat Borussia Dortmund (17:30)
This has landed in eight of Bayern’s last 12 league games and is worth backing again even in their trickiest Bundesliga fixture of the season.
Bayern have won their last three games at Dortmund, with Lewandowski scoring in both of the last two.
He has scored 30 goals in 26 matches for club and country this season so this seems an obvious bet.
